DIY Bachelorette Trucker Hats and Toasting Flutes with Cricut

Did you guys see my Drunk in Love Bachelorette Party last week?
I loved working with Cricut on this fun project! And today I am going to show you how to make two of these projects yourself. I got my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine a few weeks ago, and I am now fully obsessed with the capability of this machine. I have been applying iron-on material and vinyl to everything!

First up, these Drunk In Love trucker hats! 

I love the idea of giving your guests a fun take-home favor that they can use over and over. For my bachelorette party, I created my theme around a "Drunk in Love" Beyonce inspiration. 
The first thing I did was pick up some simple black trucker-style hats with the taller tops.
I knew I wanted to apply gold foil iron-on to the fronts of the hats for the bride and her bridesmaids to wear when they go out to celebrate. 

I designed my hat decal in Cricut Design Space. I measured the hats with a measuring tape to make sure that my decal was going to be the right size. With all iron-on materials, you need to mirror-image the design before you cut it.  


Once you have your design cut and weeded, it's time for the fun party! Applying the decal to the hat! Simply use a hot iron and some sort of ironing pad/cloth to make sure that the heat of the iron doesn't melt the transfer material. 







My second project was these fun personalized toasting glasses. No more looking for your glass when you have your name on it!


I bought some simple black and gold toasting flutes and elevated them using this FUN iridescent vinyl.  I want to put this vinyl on all the things!

First, measure out the size of your glass. Make sure that your names are not too long in Cricut Design Space. 


Once you get them cut and weeded, you will need to apply the transfer tape. 

Use your Cricut scraper to make sure that the transfer tape is sticking evenly to the vinyl. 
Once you have the transfer tape applied, cut the individual names out to apply them directly to the glass. 

Once you have it applied to your glass, remove the transfer tape. 

And you're all set for a fabulous bachelorette party! 

(I told you I loved that iridescent vinyl! I applied it right to my machine top!)

Drunk in Love Bachelorette Party Ideas with Cricut


Bachelorette Parties are such fun parties for all the ladies in your wedding, but don't you agree that there need to be some new, fresh themes for these milestone celebrations? 
When you search for bachelorette party themes in store or online, you find the same old tired themes and color schemes. 
So, my solution to that is to create your own theme with your Cricut!!


I wanted a fun, contemporary theme for my bride, so I chose a "Drunk in Love" theme. Plus, what bride doesn't like Beyonce? Am I right?  And now that song is stuck in my head. 
I'm going to show you how to make five, yes FIVE, awesome projects for this party, using your Cricut!

Every "Drunk in Love" party needs toasting glasses! I bought these simple black and gold plastic flutes but I personalized them using this gorgeous Cricut iridescent vinyl. No more worrying about losing your glass or wondering which glass is yours! 




I love fresh flowers at all my events, and this one was no exception. Picking up on the gold, burgundy, pink, and black theme, I chose some simple grocery store flowers, but I made them really stand out by personalizing the vase with Cricut glitter vinyl! These also make great keepsakes from the event. 



Your bride simply must have a sash for the evening's fun. I bought a simple white sash and the craft store, but I personalized it by using Cricut Multi-Pink glittered iron-on! You could put the bride's future name, a funny saying, or really anything! 




I also love making items for your bridesmaids and girlfriends to wear for the night! So, I made these fun, cheeky hats with Cricut gold iron-on foil!  The bride's says "Drunk in Love" and the bridemaids' say "Just Drunk."
These also function as great party favors!


Every party needs cupcakes. I love these awesome cupcakes with the bride and groom's picture printed right on top! But, they needed some dressing up, so I added a fun, geometric cupcake wrapper from the Cricut Design Spacehttps://us.cricut.com/design/ and cut it out of Cricut black glitter cardstock. I love how the geometric cuts coordinate with the diamond ring of the backdrop. 





And speaking of the backdrop, I also made THIS with my Cricut! Can you believe it? I blew up the diamond ring image to the size I wanted to have, which was about 3x3 feet and then sliced it into the mat sizes so that I could reassemble it onto a cardboard backdrop. Then, I cut around the cardboard with an xacto knife! 



Stick around for next week, when I show you how to make some of these items step-by-step.
